I am excited to welcome you to the website for the School of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences at Lindenwood University. Our website provides a wealth of information about our School and all the amazing educational opportunities we provide. The School of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences is relatively new. Our first group of students was admitted in the fall of 2013 to the RN to BSN Program. Since that time we have added a Bachelor’s in Allied Health Leadership program, a Masters in Nursing with emphasis areas in Executive Leadership and Nurse Educator, and a Bachelor’s in Public Health. The faculty and I had the pleasure of building these programs and hope our students will find their education to be challenging and valuable, as well as workable with their busy lives. We are dedicated to providing our students with a high quality education that helps to improve the health outcomes of those we serve in practice.
The Institute of Medicine report (2011) has called for nurses and other healthcare professionals to be better prepared educationally to provide high quality care in a complex health care environment. They recommend that a higher number of healthcare professionals enter the workforce with a baccalaureate degree or progress to this degree early in their careers and many will progress to master’s and doctoral level education. Our goal is to provide the opportunity to obtain higher level degrees in nursing and allied health and be better able to provide quality care within the ever changing health care system.
Our programs are user friendly for students and provide maximum flexibility along with support from faculty and other students. Our School of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences is continuing to evolve, so watch our website for updates to new programs.
The faculty and I invite you to allow us to assist you in achieving your goal for a challenging and rewarding career as a professional nurse or as an allied health professional. We offer the opportunity to study and learn in a supportive environment that recognizes the special needs of the adult learner. We are located in a fairly new building just off Highway 40 between Route K and Winghaven in Dardenne Prairie, MO. The facility is excellent and provides us with a comfortable environment for a variety of nursing and interdisciplinary experiences.
Come try us and you will find there is no better choice to begin or continue your education than Lindenwood University School of Nursing and Allied Health Sciences. For further information, contact the Admissions Office at (636) 949-4949 or my office at (636) 627-2932.
